  • Recommended Ladder Rack for 2017 Ram 1500
  • The ladder rack I highly recommend checking out for your 2017 Ram 1500 is the Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack # EM07705. This is a confirmed fit for '17 Ram 1500's of any bed size so long as they do not have a RamBox installed. The Erickson ladder rack has an 800 lb capacity, 29" uprights, uses aerodynamic crossbars to reduce the noise and wind resistance you may encounter, and features sliding load stops. I've added a link to a video review of this rack for you to take a look at.

  • Ladder Rack and Tonneau Cover that Fit Together on 2018 Ram 3500 Short Bed
  • The Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack # EM07705 cannot install if the BAKFlip G2 Tonneau cover # BAK26203 is installed on your 2018 Ram 3500 short bed. The Tonneau cover rail will be in the way and the rack cannot be mounted properly. If you do not already have a Tonneau cover then I recommend using the Revolver X2 # BAK39213 and the TracRac SR sliding ladder rack # TA21501-03. This combination has proven to work together and is the best option to have a ladder rack and Tonneau cover at...

  • What is the Warranty on the Erickson Heavy Duty Silver Tarp?
  • The Erickson Heavy-Duty Silver Tarp, 14 x 14 Weave - 30' x 50' # EM57028 is a really strong tarp with a criss-cross 14 x 14 weave of 1,000-denier nylon thread. It has a poyethelyne coating to resist UV rays and harsh weather to prevent shrinking, rot, and mildew. It has rust-proof grommets and plasti-reinforced corners. I recommend inspecting the tarp for any manufacturing defects before initial use. The manufacturer does not warranty this product after use. There are just too many...

  • Spacing of Installation Holes on the Ericson Dock Cleat # EM53400
  • I went out into our warehouse to measure the Erickson Dock Cleat - Galvanized Steel - 6" Long # EM53400 for you. The holes are 1-1/2 inches on center. There really isn't a trick to the system you mentioned, but this cleat will hold strong if you are willing to change from the 2 inch on center cleat.

  • Erickson E-Track Tie Downs for Mini Cooper
  • The Erickson Adjustable Wheel Net with E-Track Fittings # 77314 would not be compatible with the Erickson Roller Idler for E-Track # EM09144 simply because there would be no way to get the straps from the Wheel Net through the Roller Idler because of the E-track fittings attached to the Wheel Net. I've left links to video reviews of each product for you to take a look at.

  • Availability of Cover for 5th Wheel Trailer with Slide Outs Extended
  • Although they do not make any covers for a 5th wheel trailer with the slide outs extended, I may have a solution for you. You could use the Erickson Heavy-Duty Silver Tarp # EM57019 to help protect your trailer against the elements. This tarp has 14 x14 weave and measures 20 feet by 40 feet. You would only need to find the best way to secure it. Since covers are not made for your specific application, this is the best solution to help protect your 5th wheel trailer.

  • Will Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit Hold Honda Pioneer 700?
  • The Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160 has a total safe working limit of 1,500 lbs; the straps themselves are not rated for 1,500 lbs each. When you install four that would mean your limit would increase to 3,000 lbs. This kit, which will work with tires that are 10" to 30" in diameter, has been met with extremely high praise from our customers who have used it. I've added links to a pair of video reviews on this kit for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Tarp to Cover 38 Foot Long Gooseneck Trailer
  • For a tarp that should be large enough to cover your gooseneck trailer, I recommend looking at the Erickson Heavy-Duty Silver Tarp # EM57027. This all-purpose tarp measures 30 feet wide and 40 feet long. It features a reflective, silver-gray cover to prevent heat absorption and plastic-reinforced corners for excellent strength and durability. If you want something a bit larger, we also have the Erickson # EM57055, which measures 33 feet wide and 48 feet long. We do also have storage...

  • How Far Out Does the Erickson Arched Loading Ramp Set Extend

When measuring your steps you will need to measure across the steps not straight out. I have attached a review video of these ramps for you as well.

  • Roof Rack for 2013 Toyota Corolla LE 4-Door Sedan to Allow Transporting Jon Boat
  • Any vehicle's roof weight-carrying capacity includes the weight of an aftermarket roof rack, so if your boat itself weighs 107-lbs you will need to add to this the weight of the roof rack system you choose to ensure the combined load is within the rated capacity for the vehicle. This can usually be found in your owner's manual. I checked an online edition but it did not specifically call out the roof weight rating for the 2013 Corolla LE so check your printed manual to be on the safe side. The...

  • Waterproof Cover for Utility Trailer
  • For a waterproof cover on your utility trailer, I recommend the Erickson Heavy-Duty Silver Tarp, 14 x 14 Weave - 8' x 10' # EM57021. If you are looking for a storage cover, then I recommend the Adco Cover for Pop-Up Camper - Tyvek - 12' Long # 290-22892. This is designed for a camper, so I recommend putting something in your trailer to help the top sit level so there is no puddling if you go this route. This will have waterproof roof and sides, but will also have breathability.

So what you can do to get an idea is find a tape measure that can go out 84 inches and set one end of it at the rear tailgate edge when at that length and the other on the ground. That will tell you what angle the ramp would be at and if your deck would clear. The part # EM07486 is 90 inches long and is arched which means that it will have a smoother transition angle from the ramp to the truck bed. This would probably...

  • ATV Tie-Down Track System for ATV's with 32" Tires
  • I do have a way that will allow you to secure an ATV with 32" tires to a trailer, however, we do not have a single all inclusive kit that will allow you to do so. Instead you will want to piece together a kit that will allow for this. I recommend using the Erickson Horizontal E-Track part # EM59150 in addition to a set of wheel chocks and tie downs like the Erickson E-Chock Wheel Chocks for E-Track part # EM09162-2 and the Snap-Loc E-Track Tie-Down Strap w/ Ratchet and Soft Tie-Loop...

  • Backing Plate for Use with Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit EM09160
  • Erickson does offer a zinc-plated steel backing plate for use with their E-Track products like their ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160. Use part # BPEZ. You can see this item's hole dimensions and spacing in the linked photo. Since your trailer deck is aluminum and this plate is steel you will want to isolate them to prevent galvanic corrosion between the two different metals. A coating of paint or other insulating material will do it.

  • If Wood is Secured to E-Track Bracket # 59149 Can Board be Removed as One Piece
  • Since the bracket part # 59149 has to be angled into the E-track to install there wouldn't be a way to pull the board and bracket out of a track as one piece since the board would prevent you from getting the right angle.

  • What Fasteners to Use to Secure Erickson E-Track to Trailer Interior
  • Erickson E-Track should be secured to the mounting surface with no fewer than 2 fasteners per linear foot per side, so for example a 3-foot section would need no less than 8 fasteners. The type and length of fastener depends on the mounting surface more than anything else. The screws used should be either stainless or galvanized and they should be long enough to take full advantage of the depth of material at the mounting point. If you were install the tracks on 3/4-inch or 1-inch thick...

  • Strap Recommendation for Securing Jeep Wrangler with Large Off Road Tires
  • We don't carry wheel nets that are going to be large enough to fit the tire sizes you have of 33 x 12.5 X R15 since what we have is more sized for non-offroad tires. Just looking around online I see there are nets out there that would be large enough, but you also could use ratchet straps to the tow hooks on the front and back of the Jeep too like with the # EM58629 which is a 20 foot long strap with a 3,300 lb capacity. You may also be able to run the straps around the axles.
